    MacBook Pro Mid 2012 Retina - 'Whiring' noise
    Evening all,

    My Macbook Pro retina has started making a constant 'whirring' noise whenever it's used, it begins as soon as the lid is opened. I'm assuming it's a fan, I've noted it come on in the past when it's been used for a long time or come out of hibernation, however now it is all the time.

    Given I use the device mostly for work related tasks in a quiet environment its very annoying. I bought a care pack with the device, if I take it to an apple shop will they fix the problem i.e. does an issue of this kind constitute them invoking the carepack?

    Also, ever since I bought the MBP it's always had 2 (for want of a better phrase) blown out pixels, it's not always noticeable, but when it is it's annoying. Is something like that covered by the carepack?


    thanks!

    Specs:
    27" 5K iMac, 3.3GHz, 256GB Flash Storge, 16GB memory and OS X.11.3.
    Assume you mean the optional three year AppleCare?

    If so pop it in to where you purchased or an Apple Reseller/Genius Bar.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Thanks for the swift reply.

    Yep the optional 3 years one.

    I read somewhere that they can't repair the retina macbooks and have to replace them if there is a hardware fault? Sounds nonsense to me?!?

    If you have the 3 year extended Applecare...then just take it to Apple. Regardless of how they have to repair it...it will be repaired/replaced.
